Paint play, Thankful

Wall O' Stencils
I spent some time yesterday playing with paint and stencils. I have a mission to create 12 6 inch blocks to exchange with my bee mates. The theme is thanksgiving/ Fall/ Thankful.
Some paints had dried up, and  had to throw away  half a jar of rubber paint. What a waste!  The paint I currently love the best is SETA color shimmers for impact. I still like the Jacquard metallics, and for watercolor effects love SETA transparent. All are textile friendly and wash off with soap and water.
Next step here is to make into 6 inch blocks, quilt, embellish and then in November trade with friends.

I can tell you now, I will have trouble letting them go. Why do I get so attached to my work??

  1. Because you do what you like and you do good work. The trees are delightful. Just back away from the one inch hexies, though; down that path lies insanity.

  2. beautiful blocks! I get attached to my work too. I think it's because our work and creativity is an extension of ourselves. So, I always wonder whether someone else could possibly love something I've made as much as I do.

    I'm so happy you shared at Needle and Thread Thursday!

  3. Looks like fun! I had to chuck some paint recently too. Bummer. And had 2 more lids break. Guess I need to use my paints more often! With you as inspiration, it might happen.

  4. Those are wonderful! Especially grouped together like that. I hate it when paint gets dried up but that means I haven't been playing enough with them.

  5. It's good that you like your own work. It is lovely. It will be fun to exchange work, though. I love doing that with my artist friends.
